Best Time to go to Bali

The best time to go really depends on your own personal preferences. There are a few factors that will influence your decision, depending on where you want to go and what you want to do. The following should help you decide when you think the best time to go to Bali will be.

Bali is located 890 km south of the equator so the weather is mostly a tropical warm (Avg 31C or 87.8F) and humid (75%) all year round. With the high 75% humidity, it can often make it feel a lot hotter. Even in the monsoon or wet seasons, in this tropical paradise, it is still likely it will be sunny for a good part of the day.

I believe the best time to go to Bali can be just before and after high season, May / June or September / October. It’s still in their dry season, it’s less humid and room prices can be ALOT cheaper than during high season. Bali seems to be a lot more relaxed, restaurants are less crowded and with fewer crowds, to me, that’s more enjoyable. You will still find some pretty decent priced flights as well.
